Jars, Jars and more Jars PART 2 ~ #Reuse #Upcycle #DIY

I've had so many lovely comments about my upcycled jars. I thought I would put them together into one post. My original post HERE I mention what I use my jars for. One of my favourite ways is for a plant pot.

I love that I can put any design I want (so far any, I haven't found one I can't do yet :) ). I really enjoy decorating them.

I use Sharpies, Glass paint and nail polish to decorate them. Yep you read that right, Nail polish, its a great way of using them up. I can't be the only one that has a draw full of polishes? I have so many that I will never wear again, but they are great to decorate a jar with.   

 I recommend once you have painted them. Don't clean with any liquid. Just dust/wipe them with a dry cloth. I have noticed on some the paint comes off.

Also if you decide to use the jars as lights. I don't recommend using nail polish for decorating them.

And make sure you are in a well ventilated room. From experience I have felt a bit heady after spending some time decorating these esp. with the nail polish.

Hope you enjoyed this post and got some ideas to decorate your own jars. I will add this post to a tab on my homepage and add new pictures of my jars when I do them.

Have you made your own Vases/Plant pots? Have you ever upcycled a glass jar? Let me know in the comments below. I would love to know :)

Till next time
